The Arshile Gorky stamp

Lucine Kasbarian sent The Armenian Kitchen the following message and article regarding the March 11th issuance of the Arshile Gorky stamp by the U.S. Postal Service.

Let’s get on the band-wagon and do our part!
**********************************************************

On March 11, the U.S. Postal Service is issuing the Arshile Gorky postage stamp (see article below).

Let's get behind this by asking everyone -- Armenian and non-Armenian organizations and businesses -- to buy and use the stamp.

For example, we can have Armenian churches use the stamp for all their correspondence. We can ask Armenian schools, newspapers, bookstores, gift shops, cultural centers and societies, youth groups, Armenian groceries and restaurants to do the same.

We can also ask any business we associate with-- such as banks, insurance companies, real estate agencies -- to use the stamp in their correspondence when it's not bulk mail. We can do it !

Please circulate.

  1. Newsflash now that the stamps are available: Unbeknownst to most of us, the US Post Office has released a "pane" of stamps featuring abstract expressionist painters. Each pane features only ONE Gorky stamp. Makes one wish the USPS did smart demographic marketing and thought to sell these stamps singularly!
